‘If I wanted to see a team playing pretty football, I would buy a season ticket at the Nou Camp. I’m a Blues fan and I want to see my team win or, failing that, putting a shift in, nothing else matters’.

I came across the above comment on social media. I couldn’t really argue with it. We all want to see nice football but if it’s not effective, it’s completely pointless.

Saturday will undoubtedly be the tale of the two managers. One is a hugely popular figure at St.Andrews and the other is Gianfranco Zola. While Rowett’s return offers a distraction to the predicament Blues are in, he may wonder what could have been.

Indeed, we’re all left wondering what could have been. But I’m not going to go over all of the ground that’s already been covered as Rowett has gone. However, that doesn’t mean we have to accept that Zola is the right man for the job.

With two wins in 21, it pains me to read that he’s making plans for next season (asking about the availability of Krystian Bielik) despite overseeing an almighty plunge down the league table.

Some agree that the club were right to sack Rowett, some disagree. Yet no matter where you stand on this tedious debate, you’ll struggle to find many of a sane mind hoping for Zola’s job to continue beyond May.
